3.0 out of 5 stars Their Hair Band Phase April 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
These seven tracks find perennial frontman Phil Mogg wandering in the wilderness of late 80's hair metal with the same group (minus Paul Raymond) who cranked out the Whitesnake-ish "Misdeameanor" album a few years after the Mogg-Way-Chapman-Parker-Raymond lineup gave up the ghost and Phil had to start again from scratch. If you hold your nose and close your eyes, you'll get past the obilgatory sexpot strut and frenzied shredding to find that this stuff ain't half bad if only because Mogg always surrounds himself with guys who know how to produce solid hooks and a satisfying crunch. Far from the best UFO, but hardly the worst. If you got some disposable dough you don't know what to do with, there are more reprehensible ways to squander it.

3.0 out of 5 stars phil mogg,lost soul March 17, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
the songs are not bad , the album is not bad, but I can sence a touch of sadness in this music, as if phil became a lost soul and a soul survivor, it's like he was saying I am here to rock,
but hey Michael,Pete,Andy,Paul .....Where is everybody? i'll still hold on the name ufo as long as i can.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another UFO classic March 13, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In '88 UFO had a lot to prove. Their last album, as great as it
was, was their least successful in many years, and the rock
landscape was far less hospitable to the band than ever before.
So Mogg, Simpson, Gray and Atomic Tommy shrugged and got down
to business with this mini-album. This cd is a scorcher. UFO
hadn't rocked this hard in years, and the performances are
every bit as amazing as anything the band would ever do.
Sadly, "Ain't Misbehavin" was even less popular than
"Misdemeanor", selling to the hardcore fans and not even being
noticed by anyone else. It proved to be the final release
from this lineup, as when the next UFO slab finally
appeared four years later Mogg had again reorganised the band.
UFO never put out substandard work, and "Ain't Misbehavin" can
proudly stand alongside the rest of their amazing catalog.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden Gem! November 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Described by some as an outtake from UFO's "hair metal" phase, and consisting of a line-up including only one original member, this album could just as fairly be dubbed a Phil Mogg solo project.

But that's not the whole story.

With only 7 tracks and a rather "raw" sound to the mix, this release is more of an EP than an album. However, there are some truly wonderful songs on this release. Mogg's vocals are heartfelt, crisp, and emotive and the arrangements of each track represent what is great about melodic rock. Nobody makes albums like this anymore.

The easy standout track is "Another Saturday Night," a well-crafted power ballad featuring a brilliant vocal performance from Phil Mogg. "Atomic" Tommy McClendon lays down a heart-wrenching guitar solo that sends this song through the stratosphere. Simply put, it's a classic that deserved a lot more attention than it received.

The bottom line: This is an outstanding hidden gem that will please fans of Hurricane and King Kobra as well as many die-hard UFO loyalists. This album would really benefit from a proper remaster and reissue, perhaps with additional bonus content. Add it to your UFO collection for some additional listening pleasure and musical diversity from one of rock's all-time greatest bands.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm feelin' tragic... December 4, 2011
By Mark H.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Man talk about if at first you don't succeed....After the vinyl debacle that was `Misdemeanor', Phil Mogg waited about two years or so and once again dragged UFO's name through the mud with a minor atrocity called `Ain't Misbehavin''. Even the record company must have thought this was a mistake because it was only a six-song EP that was barfed out in early '88. No Pete Way or Andy Parker; not even Paul Raymond, Paul Chapman or Neil Carter could have saved Phil from this dreck. The music on the EP is `80's hair metal at its most keyboard driven, radio friendly and totally devoid of soul, class or cajones. I hate this period of UFO, talk about dark times man. Maybe "Easy Money" or "Rock and a Hard Place" are worth your trouble but otherwise don't bother. After a misdemeanor, Mogg has committed a major felony! Jeez!

While "Ain't Misbehavin'" isn't on par with any of UFO's more shining works like "Light's Out", "Obsession", or even "Mechanix", it's nowhere near as bad as "Misdemeanor", (which was so bad that it should have been called "Felony".) This is the kind of '80's metal that might grow on you if given time, but I doubt you'd pack it for a road trip. At least the band isn't doing the Eric Carmen thing with their hair anymore.
